Buccaneer Magazine's Game MVP: LB Jeff Gooch

August 13 - Buccaneer Magazine has awarded Bucs' LB Jeff Gooch the Most Valuable Player award after his outstanding performance against the Miami Dolphins on Monday night.

It wasn't too long ago that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers traded LB Jeff Gooch to the St. Louis Rams for a draft pick. But Gooch was not able to pass a team physical and was shipped back to Tampa Bay.

In the first preseason game of the 2001 season for the Buccaneers, no one shined brighter than Gooch.

Gooch recorded four tackles against the Miami Dolphins on Monday night and more importantly caused two fumbles.

Both fumbles stalled Miami drives that could have resulted in scores.

Gooch is Buccaneer Magazine's fist Game MVP of the 2001 Bucs' season.
